Very disappointed with the bartenders attitude and the clams. Have come many times. First time not a happy customer.

“suffocated by cigarette smoke”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

The cigarette smoke was so thick I couldn't image eating a meal there! This is a smoke free state so I'm not sure how this place stays in business since it presents itself as a restaurant not a bar.

“Oysters and jamming bar”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

Hopping pro jam night on Tuesday. some of the best sax playing i've heard in a long time. but the surprise was the dozen fresh local oysters and for 9 Clams, as everything is priced in clams. had a fun night, hopping band that literally blew the power out after 9:40! Can't wait to come back...but oh those incredible oysters outdone only by the music.
